707 Ready for snow

Recommended Posts

lol, kinda. Not night vision...but that might be a later project pi:D I home-made the bracket/rod and bought the lights and such at Walmart! Electric start is finally done too! For the wiring I have a fuse holder and a box of 15 (Style) fuses. For the wire I got some heavier gauge wire that is double the size of the light wire so I can run a single wire. (This should work right?) I did solder the stuff so far but my soldering skills aren't so good...so it bulging and such should cause the wire to short right?

(New Stuff) ITs all done! A lot brighter than I thought!

I don't know if I'm gunna sell it now! I like it too much...

Looking good Mark, make sure you put the fuse holder within 6 inched of your power source. You don't have to have a neat solder joint to be a good one. If your wires don't pull apart than it is probably a good solder joint. I do a lot of wiring for work( light bars, sirens and two way radios, as well as repairing electronics) so if you need any help be sure to e-mail me or PM me. Looks like you are doing a fine job. I really like the way those lights look on your 707.

heat shrink tubing over the solder joints works well to. You can get the heat shrink at Radio Shack. Put it on the wire first the solder the joint then slide it over the joint and heat it with a heat gun to melt it.

Looks good Mark! I'm glad those measurements I gave you helped you make that light bar. It looks just like mine now.

I may have to go to Wal Mart myself and buy a set of those lights for one of my other project tractors. Tom

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time
